Hmmmm. That makes me wonder what I have, the bargain from an early summer
garage sale. Mine is the same size, but the metal parts, cast iron, have
beautiful scroll work of vines and grapes (painted gold). Perhaps, it was
a bigger bargain than it seemed at the time. :-)
(who hasn't pressed any cider yet)
I'm in the process of building a press; I have the basket just about
finished, then I need to make the frame. I plan to leave all the wood
unfinished, and I'll put a sheet of polyethylene sheeting between the
basket and the bottom tray instead of making the collection tray
waterproof. I'm not sure about the grinder though; I'll either make a
somewhat traditional grinder, or just modify a cheap (new) garbage disposal.
You really can't press apples without grinding them first. The grating
attachment for a Kitchenaid mixer might be good enough.

I modified a '68 Briggs and Stratton lawnmover. Bored the sumbitch out,
added the mulching attachment and 20-gallon screened hopper and I just ride
over a pile of apples. The sumbitch tears 'em up. - C.
